Coconut Cloud Martini

Coconut Cloud Martini {Sweet Pea's Kitchen}

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I love coconut! Coconut cookies, cake, pie, ice cream-I love them all! So when I first tasted this Coconut Cloud Martini at the Tommy Bahama Restaurant on the Big Island of Hawaii last October, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I was determined to recreate that tropical cocktail in my own kitchen as soon as the weather warmed up.

    Did you make enough to share? Wish I had one right now as we are 98 degrees in the shade. Sounds like a fantastic way to cool off!!!!

    Oh wow Christina, those sound delicious! Can’t wait to try them!
    I’m a coconut lover also, but not when mixed with chocolate for some reason.

    I have a recipe for the yummy “Painkiller Cocktail” courtesy of ‘Soggy Dollar Bar’ in the Virgin. Is. Forget where I found it, maybe in a magazine.

      That’s so funny that you mention a Painkiller, Patrice! That’s actually one of my favorites to make during the summer. The Soggy Dollar Bar is on my list of places I’d like to visit. A few years ago we vacationed in St. Thomas and we were planning on heading over to Jost Van Dyke for the day but ran out of time. I guess we’ll just have to go back sometime! ;)

    We had the most amazing Coconut Cocktail in Costa Rica last summer – it was a cool blended drink (with coconut water, coconut rum, coconut milk & shredded coconut) – this looks like the martini version of the same thing, SO yummy! :-)
